Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball
This cheese ball is packed with crispy bacon and ranch flavor. I roll the cheese ball in crackers before serving for a pretty presentation, extra flavor, and loads of crunch.
- 16 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1 cup grated cheddar
- 1 cup crumbled cooked bacon
- 1 packet ranch dip powder
- 1 tablespoon chopped chives
- 1 cup cheese crackers
- crackers and fresh veggies, for serving
Add the cream cheese, cheddar, bacon, ranch seasoning, and chives to a mixing bowl and stir well to combine.
Lay a sheet of plastic wrap on your work surface and place the cheese mixture in the center. Fold the plastic wrap up around the cheese and form into a ball.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes to firm up.
Crush the cheese crackers into small pieces and place on a plate.
Remove the plastic wrap from the cheese ball and roll the cheese ball in the crackers to coat.
Serve with additional crackers and fresh vegetables.
